Curious Motion Celebrating Elland’s Happiness Lab online : Join us!

Posted on

Elland’s Happiness Lab started in November 2021 and has engaged hundreds of people in creative wellbeing activities, exploring what happiness means to them and how Curious Motion can support this now and in the future. It’s been a momentous and special project, and this is just the start!

Documentary Online Premiere – this Friday!

To help tell the story of Elland’s Happiness Lab we commissioned local filmmakers, Rainbow Trout Films to make a special documentary for us.

Featuring lots of our wonderful participants, this feel-good film shares experiences, thoughts, and hopes for the future. It’s also the perfect way to see us in action!

Join us live on YouTube to watch!

Elland’s Happiness Lab Showcase Friday 15th July at 7pm

Posted on

Over the past 8 months we have been dancing, drawing, writing, singing, and making with the community in and around Elland to explore what happiness means to them for our Elland’s Happiness Lab project.
We would like to share our ‘findings’ and celebrate the project with you at a special evening event involving:
  • A preview of our happiness exhibition of drawing and writing from local groups, schools, and individuals (the full exhibition will be in Elland Library from 18th July)
  • A wonderful documentary film about the project, made by the brilliant Rainbow Trout Films
  • A ‘taster menu’ of live dance performance – each one inspired by the themes that have emerged from the project. Performed by local community members and Curious Motion dancers, with choreography by myself and the performers.
  • There will of course be brews, refreshments and light snacks available too (vegetarian/ vegan).
Please join us on Friday 15th July, 7pm, at Southgate Church in Elland (HX5 0JL). This is our first venture back into community events and we would love to share this with you!
